People are dying in Ukraine
And we worry about our retirement fund balance decreasing
Buildings and cities are being destroyed
And we plan our summer vacations
Refugees arrive from a ravaged land
And we buy our spring wardrobe
There is no electricity or water in some homes
And we complain about our cold springs
The pain of one should be the pain of all
We should not get numb to the images on our TV’s
There is a lot of misery in our world
The least we can do is be the cause of peace of harmony

Unity can be an illusive thing
We know what it is theoretically
But what does it mean in practice?
We know we must be loving
But are we always?
We have good intentions
But sometimes we’re misunderstood
We want to creat harmony
But by what means?
There is a lot of hurt in our communities
But does that justify hurting someone else’s feelings?
We are still so flawed and need to learn many things
But we are on our way to perfection and unity
We have to be very patient with one another on this way
Sometimes we will learn our lessons the hard way
Sometimes we need to forgive and forget
The human condition is a complicated one
We know what we must do
But do we know how always?
